The heavy haulage escort business is all about accident prevention, and in his new Mercedes-Benz Jason Priest has one of the safest vans on the road.
His company Priest Abnormal Load Services is based in Droitwich, Worcestershire, and acquired the Vito 111 CDI from the Kidderminster branch of Dealer Group Rygor Commercials.
Mr Priest’s biggest customer is the Allelys Group, which operates from nearby Studley and specialises in transporting the heaviest, longest and most precious locomotives. The family-run haulier was the subject of the six-part factual series Train Truckers broadcast on UKTV’s Yesterday channel earlier this year. Mr Priest and his previous Vito also made several appearances.
